Mothais sur FeuillePoitou-Charentes, France Pasteurised Goat's Milk
Mothais sur Feuille is named after the town of Mothe-Saint-Héray, where the cheese has been made and sold at local markets since the mid nineteenth century. In contrast to most goat cheese this one is aged in 100% humidity. The maturing process takes three to four weeks during which time the cheeses are turned frequently. The ripe cheese rests on a chestnut, sycamore or vine leaf.
The rind is delicate and wrinkled, often covered with blue and grey moulds. The interior has a meltingly soft texture when young, becoming denser as the cheese matures.
The pate is creamy and rich with a light aromatic earthy perfume. When young there are delicate wood, earth and leaf flavours, becoming more intense with age.
